Could the Preacher comic books be coming to the small screen?
According to a report on badassdigest.com, AMC has ordered a pilot based on the comic book series from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. The controversial comics follow Jesse Custer, a small-town preacher who struggles with his own demons, literally and figuratively.

Our top moments of the week:
14. Deadliest Temper Tantrum: On The Originals, Klaus tries to rectify the fact that he turned over his daggered brother to his current foe. After a drawn-out plan that costs quite a few lives, Klaus leads Marcel to believe he saved him and, in turn, would return his brother. But in the final scene, Marcel's bratty little mini-witch throws a hissy fit and refuses to give back Elijah before learning how to kill an Original. Klaus better steer clear of Rebekah when she finds out their brother is still gone.
13. Most Mysterious Transformation: On Tuesday's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., viewers get yet another hint as to who or what Agent Coulson is after his death in The Avengers. Coulson and the team help save his former protégé, who is surprised by how different he is from when she knew him. "But what did they do to him?" she questions Melinda May. Seriously, we're asking...
In recent years there have been rumblings about a slight decrease in participation from movie studios at Comic-Con.

The show features Smith and a studio audience chatting about an upcoming summer movie (which they previously screened).

It took 41 years, but Kevin Smith is finally proving his parents wrong.
"They always said, 'Your friends are idiots. You can't sit around and goof off with your friends.'

Comic Book Men (Sunday, 10/9c) is best described as Pawn Stars plus Clerks multiplied by comic books: one part docu-series about the crazy clerks, quirky customers and collectibles at Smith's Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash comic book store in Red Bank, N.J., and one part talk show, where the guys gather together — no confessional needed — to discuss the...
